From the borough's site, www.trappeboro.com/history.htm "
In the two corners of the flag are the dates of founding in 1717 and the incorporation of the borough in 1896.The shield is topped by a sunburst which was the favorite colonial symbol for hope. We have hope for the future because of the faith, industry, education and the practice of representative government of the families of Trappe. The colors are blue and gold (colors of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania) on white. Design by Mr Frank Eld, Mr. George Hartman, Ms. Marion Walsh and Rev. John C. Shetler. Suggestions for design were received from Junior and Senior High School students as well as citizens of the community. Art work was done by Mr. Eugene Blue."Valentin Poposki, 15 November 2005
